Honestly, who'd be a pro golfer? Those fairway frolickers harbour- ing dreams of the good life may meet their maker over the next month or so as cards are won and lost across all Tours, from Paul Dunne's nail-biting Race to Dubai struggles to those trying to elevate their status from Satellite Tour to something more permanent. Stage One of European Tour Qualifying School has been and gone with 183 players progressing to Stage Two in November from the record-breaking 842 who tried. Castleknock's David Carey led the way at Bogogno with an im- posing 24-under par tally while the likes of Conor O'Rourke, Niall Kearney, Tyler Hogarty John Ross Galbraith, Daniel Brennan and most-recently, Galway amateur Ronan Mullarney all followed suit from elsewhere. November 7th signals the start of Second Stage with the warm shores of Spain also welcoming Tour Championship deciders for the EuroPro Tour in Almeira from October 30th, where Jonathan Caldwell occupies one of the top- 5 positions set to earn Challenge Tour qualification for next year, while those he's hoping to join on the feeder Tour to the Main Arena take on Alcanada for the final stop on the Road to Mallorca, 2019. This past week at Headfort, Cor- mac Sharvin assured himself a Eu- ropean Tour card for next season via that route; the 27-year old be- coming the latest player from this prosperous island to earn his stripes on the Tour. Not everyone will be so fortunate over the next few weeks but it won't be for a lack of trying as the cauldron hots up once more for the most intense period of golf an aspiring pro can play through. It may have all gone quiet across the Irish club scene but pros around the world are about to earn their crust, or not, as the case may be. CRUNCH TIME Ronan Mullarney Conor O'Rourke
